I never really thought about the phrase "gone bananas!" much. But people use it to describe someone going kind of crazy over something else. I think I recently learned first-hand where the phrase originated.
It's pretty common knowledge that monkeys love bananas, right? Well I had the opportunity to hang out with some monkeys on my recent trip to Costa Rica, and learned that monkeys truly go crazy over bananas. Crazy. They go bananas. Here are some video clips of us feeding the monkeys on a boat tour and in the national park in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.
The clip where the camera is really shaky is where I'm shooting the video and feeding a monkey at the same time. Multi-tasking at its best.
